This is an animated short I made over the weekend. I've been getting all my main character rigs created and it's really been pushing the narrative to be able to play with these characters in the world of animation. This short introduces, Ava Sinclaire, one of my main characters, to FMNL (Forget Me Nots Land. I haven't figured out the sound of this world but I will one day. Take it as is for now. Enjoy. #animation #FMNL #FORGETMENOTSLAND #RogerallanCleaves #RogerCleavesArt #Av
I've been spending most of my free time writing and building in Maya. I have several sketchbooks going; some are based on characters and others are for more abstract ideas. Whenever I get stuck on the story I try to draw characters and scenes . Ideally I would like to make a map of the real world that connects to the Land of The Forget Me Nots. #art #forgetmenotland #rogercleaves #narrativeart
What rings true? What deserves to be placed on a pedestal for review. Bookie, the main character from my narrative, is exploring these ideas in the current chapter I am writing. I have made a few paintings exploring some of the sculptures in the story. The sculptures are made up partly of scraps that are found in the Land of the Forget Me Nots and from things that Bookie has encountered in other worlds he has explored. Horseshoe elements are plentiful in the Land of the FMN.
